Just in time for autumn, Ural lets loose with the 2020 Ural Weekender SE. Based on the 2WD Gear Up model, the Weekender SE features striking hand-applied two-tone paint, along with its own feature set.The 2020 Ural Weekender SE comes with a 2/3 length rider set, vinyl tonneau and apron set for the sidecar, a windshield, spare wheel, stainless steel sidebar bumper, and fog lights.
Ural also brightens things up by replacing many black parts, such as the wheels, with a Silver Trim motif. It’s something of a throwback design, with the paint recalling 1990s Urals, as well as the Silver Trim bringing to mind the discontinued Patrol model. The color names might be a bit confusing, so we can tell you that the Poppy is orange, Sunshine is yellow, and Meadow is green.To fulfill its promise as a weekend warrior, the Weekender SE can be ordered with Ural’s 1.25-inch accessory receiver. That allows you to add a cargo rack, bicycle carrier, or snowboard rack, among other options.2020 Ural Weekender SE SpecsENGINE

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Ultimate Motorcycling’s weekly Podcast—Motos and Friends.
My name is Arthur Coldwells.
This week’s Podcast is brought to you by Yamaha motorcycles. Discover how the YZF-R7 provides the perfect balance of rider comfort and true supersport performance by checking it out at YamahaMotorsports.com, or see it for yourself at your local dealer.
This week’s episode features Senior Editor Nic de Sena’s impressions of the beautiful new Harley-Davidson Low Rider ST that is loosely based around the original FXRT Sport Glide from the 1980s. Hailing from The Golden State, these cult-status performance machines became known as West Coast style, with sportier suspension, increased horsepower, and niceties including creature comforts such as a tidy fairing and sporty luggage.
In past episodes you might have heard us mention my best friend, Daniel Schoenewald, and in the second segment I chat with him about some of the really special machines in his 170 or so—and growing—motorcycle collection. He’s always said to me that he doesn’t consider himself the owner, merely the curator of the motorcycles for the next generation.
Yet Daniel is not just a collector, but I can attest a really skilled rider. His bikes are not trailer queens, they’re ridden, and they’re ridden pretty hard. Actually, we have had many, many memorable rides on pretty much all of the machines in the collection at one time or another.
From all of us here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
